BOSTON (AP) - Boston Celtics wing Jaylen Brown has agreed to terms on a five-year supermax contract extension that will pay him up to $304 million, his agent said on Tuesday.
The two-time All-Star averaged career highs of 26.6 points, 6.9 rebounds and 3.5 assists last season. By virtue of making the All-NBA second team - his first such honor in his career - he was eligible for the supermax extension.
The deal was first reported by ESPN and confirmed to The Associated Press by Brown's agent, Jason Glushon.Other news Future of Brown-Tatum tandem in spotlight as Celtics enter offseason The Celtics' rollercoaster season ended a round short of a return to the NBA Finals.
